What’s wrong? Is there something on my face? After the talking sword sends us to the past, we’re meeting Ted in boy form, damning the damned, charing a village, encountering the enigmatic Yuber, cursing Ted with a sorrowful fate, accepting the Star Dragon Sword, recruiting a librarian, reading Old Books in front of a simulated live audience, impressing recruits with our recruits, installing Window in our castle, observing vampire invitation rules, naming a sword to join a party, dramatically playing an organ, cutting off a head, and finally making a woman happy. May the birth of this new warrior be celebrated by all.
